The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) has announced the 2018-2019 Tri-M Music Honor Society Chapter of the Year, presented by Schmidt Vocal Arts.

The National Chapter of the Year Program is designed to motivate and reward chapters that perform service projects, encourage Chapter Officers to perform their duties properly, and increase awareness and interest in what other Tri-M chapters are doing.

The Tri-M National Chapter of the Year (Junior and Senior) will receive an engraved permanent service plaque along with the Chapter of the Year Scholarship award. Scholarships must be used to fund a professional development activity for the chapter including, but not limited to, clinicians, master classes, field trips, conference travel, or summer music program scholarships.
